Boulder World Cup Report 2011: Munich


The IFSC Bouldering World Cup closed last Saturday with the event in Munich, Germany. The competition awarded the World Cup titles to Austrians Anna Stöhr and Kilian Fischhuber, although neither of them stepped up for the first place in Munich. In the women's field, Slovenian Mina Markovic gained the gold medal with 3 tops out of 4, followed by Juliane Wurm and Stöhr. Russian Dmitry Sharafutdinov shows again his great shape with four boulders climbed on first attempt, but most impressive is the fact that only Russian athletes are on the podium at the last bouldering competition of the year: Rustam Gelmanov is second, and Alexey Rubtsov is third.
